INDIANAPOLIS -- A man accidentally fired his gun as he was placing it inside his car's glove box outside of Northwest Community High School Wednesday morning.

A spokesperson for Indianapolis Public Schools says the incident happened before any students were on campus.

IMPD and IPS Police are investigating to determine if there will be any criminal charges.

IPS policy regarding employee weapons is as follows:

A staff member who may legally possess a firearm under Indiana law may possess a firearm or ammunition that is locked in the truck of the employee's vehicle, kept in the glove compartment of the employee's locked vehicle, or stored out of plain sight in the employee's locked vehicle.

IPS says the policy is aligned with state code.
